The bridesmaid was attired in a dress of pink georgette and carried a bouquet of sweet peas and ferns. The maid of honor wore a dress of rose silk canton crepe and also carried a bouquet of sweet peas and ferns.

A wedding reception was held for relatives at the home of the bride's parents, the home being decorated in pink and white for the occasion. In the evening, a free wedding dance was given at Wiedenhoeft's pavilion, which was largely attended and enjoyed by all.
